What if the world WAS flat? What if there were no animals to hunt in Sherman Country? What if today’s the only day I got?
What if there were no hypothetical questions?
Speaking in hypotheses can be exhausting because you never talk about what’s really going on. Instead, you focus on made-up scenarios. There’s no real way to know what’s going to happen unless you actually get out into the world and live your life.
“No regrets, in the end I wanna know I got no what ifs” – Matthew West
Still, hypothetical questions can be a great way to get to know someone. Hypothetically speaking, would you want a large family or a small one? If you could move, would you want to live in Minnesota, Kansas, or Wisconsin? The answers to the questions you pose could help you to learn a lot.
Be Yourself Instead of Being What Others Want
Shannon L. Alder once said, “One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
We hear stories about this all the time. Walk into any hospital and ask the surgeon why he chose to get into surgery. He’ll tell you that it’s because his father and his grandfather are also surgeons.
The same can be said if you talk to lawyers, restaurant owners, and countless others.
What if standing by the sea seemed like holding a shell up to your ear?
You don’t want to be 40, 50, or 60 years old and by talking in hypotheticals. What would have happened if you chose a different career path? What would life be life if you had done what you had wanted to do?
You cannot allow other people’s expectations of you to mold the person you become. Instead, you have to remember that you are an individual. You are responsible for your happiness. That means that you have to be the one to make every major decision about your life.
You don’t want to look back on your life and have countless regrets. Hypotheticals should be met with certainty rather than remorse and regret.
As Lois McMaster Bujold said, “We should have taken our chances back then, when we were young and beautiful and didn’t even know it.”
Think about that for a moment. What are you waiting for? You’ll never be younger or more beautiful than you are right now. You might as well put that to use and live your life to the fullest.
What if broccoli doesn’t like you, either? There’s always the possibility that you spend your time feeling bad about liking something when it (or he or she or them) doesn’t like you, either.
What if iPhone chargers were called Apple juice? It would be a fun marketing tactic, but it may also lead to quite a bit of confusion at the grocery store.
What if the cars weakest part was the nut holding the steering wheel?
What if memory foam mattresses wished they could forget? Especially when these mattresses are at hotels, they’ve got a different person lying on them every night. It makes it difficult for them to live up to their fullest potential.
There are countless what-if scenarios that you could pose throughout life. Some are for fun, while others are about as serious as you can get.
I’m all about no regrets. In the end, I wanna know I got no “what ifs” looming over me.
Be an Opportunist
What if the opportunist drinks the glass of water while the optimist and the pessimist are arguing about it? It would certainly end the conversation – and that may be exactly what the opportunist was hoping for.
You have to look for ways to be an opportunist. You take life by the horns so that you have no regrets.
What if you buy a traditional home instead of a pole barn and end up in debt?
What if you don’t have a shed for all of your sports equipment, and it rusts?
What if you have a smaller home and fail to create a man cave for yourself?
What is pollen is a sign that flowers can’t keep it in their plants.
These are the real hypothetical questions you have to ask yourself. They are the ones that can keep you up at night, wondering if you’re making the smartest moves in life.
If you buy a traditional home, it can be expensive. You may spend a significant amount of money on upkeep, too. In the end, it could lead to massive amounts of debt. Meanwhile, a Sherman pole barn could be a better investment because of its incredible craftsmanship and affordable designs.
If you don’t have a shed for your equipment, gear, and everything else, and it does rust, you could end up wasting thousands of dollars. And it will keep happening until you have a place where you can keep everything from the elements. Again, a Sherman pole barn has the means to protect your gear from snow, rain, hail, and all the other adverse weather. Every barn is fully customizable so that it fits your needs.
What if reintarnation meant coming back as a hillbilly?
If you don’t have a man cave, you have nowhere to go where you can contemplate life, scratch yourself in private, and yell at the sports team that you follow. Too many displays of masculinity within the home could lead your wife to scream at you repeatedly. Without changing the way you do things, it could even lead to divorce. That means that for a happy marriage, you should probably invest in a Sherman pole building so you can have a man cave for all of your manly activities.
Ask yourself some hypothetical questions
Ask yourself some hypothetical questions to help you determine what your next move is going to be. If you don’t like the way some of your answers guide you, you’ll want to take the necessary actions to prevent bad things from happening.
